Lenolia was born November 27, 1921, in Talladega, Alabama to the union of Burt and Claudia Lawson. She attended and graduated from the Talladega County Training School. In 1946 she married the love of her life Robert Lieutenant Easley, Sr. To this union were born three sons, Kenneth, Bruce and Robert, Jr. and one daughter Countess.

Lenolia was an active member of Davis Chapel Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, Richmond, CA. She attended Sunday School, served as an Usher (Emeritus), and was a member of both the Carnation Circle and Missionary Society. She was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of her important contributions to the ongoing fight against hatred and intolerance in America. Her name is shown on the Wall of Tolerance in Montgomery, Alabama to provide inspiration to all those who choose to take a stand against hatred.

Lee enjoyed family outings, traveling, gardening, cooking, baking (she is well known for her sweet potato pies and loaf pound cakes!), sewing, crocheting, word search puzzles, working on her computer, reading from her Nook eReader, watching Family Feud with Steve Harvey and watching the weekly Richmond City Council Meetings.

She leaves a legacy of joy and laughter for all who shared her love and friendship.

Your presence is missed Aunt Lenolia. You were always there. I did not get to see you as much as I would have liked to, when I became an adult married with my own family... but I always knew you were there.

May you rest sweetly in the arms of JESUS, our EVERLASTING FATHER
in Heaven. Earth's loss is Heaven's gain!
